Yay for a short week and it already being Wednesday. Don’t you wish every weekend had three days off! I knew I wanted to post a What I Ate Wednesday today but forgot to take pictures of an entire day worth of eats, opps. So I figured I’d just share some of my random plates, most of which you see on Instagram if you follow me.
I am literally obsessed with using sweet potatoes for every meal. Have you tried this breakfast combo of sweet potatoes, nut butter, and yogurt yet? I like these ingredients either as sweet potato toast or all mixed together in a bowl.
My toasts are topped with almond butter and cinnamon then Siggi’s vanilla yogurt, goji berries, and sunflower seeds on the other.
This bowl is roasted sweet potatoes, a Siggi’s Vanilla yogurt, almond butter blob, and topped with some Purely Elizabeth granola.
Over the weekend we attended a Memorial Day cookout and I made Hot Bacon Potato Salad. It’s so delicious and has a bacon dressing, YUM! We had some leftovers so the next day I warmed up the potatoes in a skillet and then added two fried eggs and some sliced avocado for a late breakfast/lunch Monday on my day off.
It was pretty wet and rainy the entire Memorial Day weekend here so Tom and I decided to go out to dinner together one night. We picked a local spot Spoons Korean BBQ. We had dined here before and enjoyed the food, but wasn’t impressed with the service, so we gave it another shot. Everything was much better this time around, the bartender was attentive and got my order correct. We shared the pulled pork hush puppies, Tom had Bulgogi and rice with Korean sides, and me Bibimbap for the win! Even thought this bowl was too hot to eat for the first 10 minutes, I eventually enjoyed every last bite.
If you’ve been keeping up with the Weekend Highlights Posts you know we’re pretty obsessed with our Electric Smoker. Last weekend it was ribs and pulled pork with my Mediterranean Chickpea Salad. This weekend we did some BBQ chicken thighs to take to a cookout Sunday and used my Jamaican Jerk Chicken recipe to cook more Monday night. I served the Jerk Chicken with cilantro lime rice and some asparagus. Oh it was so yummy and thank goodness for leftovers for easy lunches during the week. I’m so glad it’s finally outdoor grilling and cooking season. Are you thinking of investing in a new electric smoker this BBQ season?

Can you believe I didn’t make a single dessert over the weekend? I was really craving ice cream, so we picked up some Friendly’s from the grocery store. Going down memory lane as I worked at Friendly’s Restaurant for years in high school and college. But we didn’t have the Salted Caramel and Chocolate Fudge flavors I ate two bowls of each night. After all what’s Memorial Day weekend without an ice cream sundae? I’ll definitely be back in bakers mode by this weekend though, so stay tuned.
